Chirpy Sparrows


Think this works very well -like the limited palette and you've captured the chirpy, busy nature of the sparrows

Lovely, Linda, I also like the limited palette.

Thank you Hilary and Jenny, forgot to mention colours, they were burnt umber, ultramarine, yellow ochre and titanium white 😊

Super colour choice Linda, with that hint of I think yellow ochre. The gray border if good as well.

Beautiful work, Linda.

Started this last weekend and just finished it this afternoon, oil on canvas board 10 x 12 birds free internet image but background imaginary. I have tried to keep the background fairly neutral so as not to distract from the birds.
